Millet hulls are the shell of the edible seed. Ours are grown from organic millet fields in Colorado. The hulls are hypo-allergenic, are not habitable to dust mites, are cool to sleep on and are supportive and durable.
The millet hull pillow is a firm pillow, excellent for nestling in your head in its perfect spot and resting there all night. While it is not a pillow that can be fluffed as its fill is rather dense, it certainly is ready for the middle of the night shove to adjust it to a slightly new height as you roll over. If you want a custom contour pillow, this is the pillow for you. The millet hulls can be easily molded around your head and under your neck. When slept on, they do not budge all night or flatten on you, unless you roll over and create a new hollow for your head. Sleepers transitioning from feather pillows like the pillow’s ability to stay thin.
This pillow kit is sold with a quilted wool case to provide a cushion atop of the millet. The case can be gently hand washed (see Care tab). For those of you who like wool’s natural abilities to repel dust mites, you can know your millet pillow is keeping you comfortable and bite free. We do not include a liner with this pillow as the liner inhibits the free flowing movement of the hulls.
This quilted pillowcase uses wool sandwiched between two layers of GOTS organic cotton fabric. The feel is almost exactly the same as our Quilted Ticking. The outer fabric is our smooth, soft double knit and the inner our sateen. One short side has a full length zipper. To eliminate the chance of the zipper coming open on its own and to silence the jingle of the zipper pull, we have hidden the pull inside a pocket to keep it secure.
This kit is not the same price as selecting the purchasing the same products separately. It is discounted here to account for its combined components. To buy more loose fill or to choose the standard inner or outer pillow cases, see our Pillow Parts page.
This kit does not come assembled. To let you participate in the DIY aspect and to let you choose your amount of fill inside the case, we let you stuff the pillow yourself.
